Oops! Another wonky photo - much as I'd like to blame the camera (and we'd like a new one!) I think it's down to my lack of skill........
I'm finally managing to make a few cards ahead of when they are needed and this is one of them.
One of my lovely MSE friends sent me this cute image and I finally plucked up courage to colour him. Then I started to play with the papers I'd need, I was heading towards my trusty PP spots when I saw the freebie calendar from Basic Grey and just HAD to use it. Sadly, the image was so big that you can't see all of the lovely pattern which has lots of detail and the lemony lime is brighter in real life than it looks here. I will have to try to use it again sometime so you can see just how nice it is. The other backings I've had for ages and were amongst the first ones I bought, maybe Laura Ashley? Anyway, I used my new MS punches for the edge and to make a couple of corners to reduce the white space on the image. Swirls, a home made flower and a new style Craftwork sentiment completed the card.
I'd like to enter it in the following challenges:
